Stream Netflix on my PS3… Via a Blue Ray disc?

I’m not even sure where to start with how retarded this idea is.

I mean, I can stream Netflix in Boxee (post on that later), sounds like Windoze media center can stream Netflix. Roku boxes can stream it. Hell I can stream it on my Macbook!

thumb_netflixPS3_arsSo why is it that the only solution Sony and Netflix could come up with was a Blue Ray disc, that launched BD Live to access Netflix and stream the content? Really?

Why not a separate device that plugs into the PS3? Maybe a special modem? maybe a USB dongle that acts as hardware key on some software solution?

I don’t care if the disc is free or not, I don’t really see it as being worth the headache of 1. not losing the disc, 2. keeping it unscratched, and 3. putting it in every time I want to use it just to watch a movie.

I think I’ll stick with the other better solutions for now.

Sony/Netflix, please try again.

    They also said it was a temporary measure until they could include it in a PS3 update. So free disc to get it out as soon as possible to the people who want it, software update later. Yes, what horrible people they are.

    I just said it's a retarded idea, not that they're horrible people.

    While I can only speak for myself, are there really that many PS3 owners, that simply can't wait for a new software update? It's not like Sony doesn't roll one out every other month.

    I see this as a knee jerk reaction, so that Sony can jump on the "Me too" train for Netflix streaming.
